Mirror staff reports:
Decatur High School’s DECA program is sponsoring a fundraiser dance for the American Heart Association.
The “Wear Red” dance will be held after the basketball game Jan. 18 against Lakes High School. Entry fee is $5 with a red American Heart Association shirt, or $10 for shirt and admission. The Decatur dance team will also perform at halftime. The goal is to raise $1,000.
The week of Jan. 14 is American Heart Association Week. Red ribbons will be available at the student store to help raise awareness. Those who donate toward the cause will have their names written on heart-shaped paper and displayed at the student store.
In November, the DECA program has hosted a boys volleyball game. They raised money by selling T-shirts and bracelets, and students were allowed to wear hats to "put a lid on heart disease."
